Self defense is a tricky thing. As much as we may receive training or learn specific moves that will help prepare us for situations we hope not to run into, there are still so many of us that are not prepared for an actual dangerous occurrence happening before our eyes. When an immediate threat suddenly hits, there are many that freeze up and fail to remember everything they learned in their martial arts classes. The knowledge is there, but it has not been internalized.
The Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response (SPEAR) is a self defense protection system that aims to mitigate such issues by utilizing the innate physiological reflexes within us.
